Lol you guys are funny. Calling me a Apple fanboy and all. If you actually have read any of my previous posts you would know that I am the exact opposite. Ask anyone on this board. Tell Forumviewer or Steelbom that I'm a Apple fanboy. They'd laugh in your face.

You also forgot that I mentioned Windows Phone 7 also.

Steelbom come back me up. How many pages and pages have we discussed Apple products on this board?

I just know a pretty good product when I see it.

It's no worse than Android sheep. At least Apple has a decent product.

Oh please. Annoyingly slow and sluggish? I have a friend who is possibly the biggest Apple whore I know, and he happily dumped his iphone 4 for an Inc.

I'm just saying.


The fastest Android phone made. It can't even keep up with a mid range phone running Windows Phone 7.

The Android interface is written in Java. Being a professional java programmer I can tell you that java(at this point) shouldn't be in places where performance(especially in a UI) is needed.

If you can't see that the Android interface is notoriously slower than WP7 or the iPhone then you are in denial. That doesn't take away from what the phone can do. Yes it can do a lot of things. It just makes the user experience go down.

I could do this same test with say an iPhone and a Droid X. Or a Windows Phone and an EVO. Pick your poison.

Also I want to add I manage the technical side of our Verizon account at work and I play with a lot of phones. All the people who have Droid 2's or Droid's hate them. They are switching

Video has been discussed in another thread, not going to bother. You do know that the Atrix isn't even released, right? Android is not yet even close to optimized for a dual core CPU. Guess that explains why my single core, non-Android native HD2 runs Android Gingerbread flawlessly and the Atrix in that video doesn't.

I have a Droid, and I freakin' love it. I had the first android phone "G1" it was a clapper. I also had the HD2, and it was a bad ass phone ruined by HTC sense. I bought a used droid, and this thing is a tank, it never gives me problems and runs flawlessly.

What's the cheapest 3G tablet from a brand-name manufacturer?

Samsung Galaxy?
post #40 of 40
I intend to purchase by this rule.

Smart phone - Android or RIM for me (owned both, love both), iOS for the wife (not tech savy)

PC/ laptop/ tablet - full W7.
